Qik turns Android phones into live webcams

Qik, a streaming mobile video services that has gained considerable traction over its last year in beta, has unveiled support for the Android Platform today.

The live "phonecasting" service previously supported S60 and Windows Mobile devices and dabbles in iPhone OS X, but does not yet offer support for Apple's mobile device. Now, users of Google's open source mobile OS have a chance to stream live video from their devices.

The Qik app, now available in the Android Market, lets you turn your Android phone into a live webcam, which can stream live video either over the usual cellular signals or over Wi-Fi. These feeds can then be posted directly to Facebook if you have a connected account, or to Twitter and YouTube.

The following video was captured on an Android device today.
